When the Tuttle family winds up trapped on a tropical island, however, Eddie manages to provide for everyone and prove himself a real man. Written by samjjones

- When the family is boarding the boat, the bow and stern of the boat are tied to the dock. Cousin Eddie unties the line from the stern. In the next shot the boat takes off, and the bow line has disappeared. The bow line could have been untied/released while out of shot.
- When Eddie is on the top of the island, keeping the signal fire going, there is a boat visible off shore. It looks like the one they arrived on, but soon after they are rescued and told that the same boat was found 300 miles away. Possibly an optical illusion of some kind.
- While Eddie is flying the float plane, shots of the instrument panel show the airspeed as zero, with fixed altitude, even during landing. Possible instrument fault.
- In this film, Eddie only has 1 kid, but in the other Vacation movies that he's in, he has several kids. He didn't bring all his kids with him, the rest were left behind.
